The Man Who Met Himself.mov

a narrative film in English

Who is Stephen Maker? Did he fake his own death, or do doppelgängers really exist?

Palme D'Or nominated short film; Winner of Best Short Thriller - International Festival of Cinema Technology. Written and Directed by Ben Crowe. See www.bencrowe.co.uk

Winnipeg International Film Festival, Reviewed by Peter Vesuwalla, UpTown Magazine
At first it seems like a puzzle with pieces missing, and the result is a bold, surreal mindfuck of a movie. Im not sure whether I love it or hate it, but I admire its audacity.

Edinburgh International Film Festival 2005 Reviewed by: SF Said, the Daily Telegraph
Two short films by young British directors also stand out: Hibernation, by John Williams, which mixes live action and animation to powerful effect; and The Man Who Met Himself, by Ben Crowe, a stylish and cerebral Super 8 mystery. Both promise much for the future.

Episode 6: Extreme Budgeting

a report in English

How is it possible to budget just $1 a day for immediate costs like food and shelter and still save for long term items like your kids' education and emergencies?

Take action and find more resources on the Change Series website: http://www.livingonone.org/changeseries

One day, we head to the bank in town to see if we could get a loan or open a savings account with only our $1 a day income and find that it's nearly impossible! Back in the village, we talk to our friends Anthony and Rosa about how they save and borrow money without using a traditional bank. Innovative tools, like microfinance loans and savings clubs, are helping them budget their money but what kind of extra risks do these tools force Anthony and Rosa to take on?

Healing illness with the subconscious mind | Danna Pycher | TEDxPineCrestSchool

a talk in English

Surviving an accident was the easy part; coping with the chronic pain would prove more difficult. Danna Pycher shares her story about trauma and the transformative insight she gained that allowed her to harness the healing power of the subconscious mind.

Danna Pycher is a certified Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapist specializing in chronic illness and trauma. She is also a motivational speaker and coach. Her first book 3rd Generation and Beyond is a beautiful, powerful book of life philosophies according to a third generation Holocaust descendant. " A must read for the young and old who are trying to find an identity or just need a reminder on how to appreciate the little things in life." She enjoyed many years in broadcasting as an on-camera host, reporter, and producer working in the fields of health reporting and corporate productions. Her curiosity about the nature of human beings is what guides her professional pursuits.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Internetul se închide

a documentary in Romanian

"Trăim în feudalism digital".
De ce există copyright? Pe cine afectează pirateria? De ce mă simt ca un infractor atunci când stau pe net?

Cultura a devenit colaborativă iar creativitatea defineşte noua generaţie. Avem ceva foarte important de apărat: internetul, locul în care inovarea şi cunoasterea (încă) mai circulă libere. Accesul liber la informaţii a deschis poarta către cel mai comun mijloc al creativităţii: remix-ul. Ce ar trebui sa apere copyright-ul în aceste vremuri schimbătoare? Este copierea la fel de gravă ca şi furtul propriu-zis? Nu există o alta cale? E posibil să fie...

Among Giants

a documentary in English

Risking injury and incarceration, an environmental activist disrupts the clear-cutting of an ancient redwood grove by sitting on a tiny platform a hundred feet up in the tree canopy. Already three years into the tree-sit when filming begins, AMONG GIANTS blends vérité cinematography with intimate personal reflection to create a vivid picture of life in the trees and the unwavering dedication of the activists.

This film was shot and edited in 2011, and a year later, the tree-sit ended as a victory for the tree-sitters (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/06/26/18716373.php) As of 2013, negotiations are still underway for the sale of the land, and the exact acreage is still being determined.

Huge thanks to "Farmer," "Bingmouse," "Amanita," and the rest of the tree-sitters for allowing us to live with them and film their story. Learn more about their work, donate, and see what they're up to now: http://efhumboldt.org

for further requests about the film, please contact info@rainhousecinema.com

Thanks for watching!

roentgen [ENG SUB]

a narrative film in German

24 MIN / COL / S16 MM (35 MM BLOW UP) / DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 / GERMAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

FEAT.: FELIX KRAMER; SANDRA HÜLLER; KNUT BERGER; CHRISTOPH TOMANEK; DOMINIK LINDHORST; SOPHIE CONRAD; HELMUT RÜHL

SYNOPSIS: "A dark costume drama set around the dawning of the X-ray machine. Young doctor Georg believes that the newly invented apparatus can cure anything. His medical quest estranges him from his wife Charlotte. To counter the growing distance between them Charlotte puts herself completely behind her husband’s cause. Meticulous attention is paid to detail in this period piece. As every element breathes the grim expectation of horrible consequences, the story inevitably spirals out of control." (Cinestud, Amsterdam)

The Power to Heal: Sister Mary Agnes Dombroski at TEDxPiscataquaRiver

a talk in English

The Power to Heal

Sister Mary Agnes Dombroski entered the convent in 1987 and spent twelve years parenting the troubled girls at St. Charles Children's Home. During that time, she implemented a unique hiking program for the children exploring trails in New Hampshire and Maine. Sister is the Event Coordinator of the Labor Day race, which has garnered national attention and has been featured in Runner's World magazine and the CBS Early Show as well as many other publications. She has an MBA in Entrepreneurial Business from John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, California and is currently pursuing biblical studies at the graduate level.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
